Great Until it Isnt

LG_Lacks_Service 10/9/2021

Have had this soundbar and the sp8ya for two months with no issues. Works great sound is awesome on both but they no longer connect to wifi. Just stopped. Ive walked through all steps to reset and reconnect a half-dozen times still nothing. The app support is abysmal didnt realize LG dropped ALL mobile products when they stopped making phones. Ive done everything reinstalled the app reset my wifi ssid/password reset all routers and modems reset both bars--hard resets--sill no connection. Not having wifi wont stop the bars from working just from properly working as the stock settings you can access from the remote are junk. ALL settings/callibration are controlled through the app so no connection means your stuck with stock crap making the bar WAY WAY WAY overpriced garbage. The product is as good as the app which is to say outs garbage. If your forcing the use of an app to access settings make sure the thing works

Fantastic Sound

Digdavis 9/17/2021

Added this super sound bar to my LG television. Loved the packaging that included minimal plastics and styrofoam with that said the formed cardboard packaging was robust and everything arrived in perfect shape. Setup and installation was a breeze. Truly room filling sound that we enjoy everyday and is especially on movie nights. I did receive this at a discounted price for reviewing this super sound bar system.

What

Reis 9/7/2021

I purchased this soundbar along with the C1. The sound quality is unmatched. Playing video games or watching movies - the AI auto detects which sound setting is best. Set up was a breeze. Simply connect to the tv and its all set. Theres a phone app that allows you to control the soundbar. Streaming music from our phones is simple and quick. The soundbar is a tad over 2. It fits perfectly between our wall mounted tv and fireplace mantle.

JerryGeorgo 9/4/2021

Our first soundbar with the needed features I was looking for. Having both HDMI/ARC and HDMI eARC provides easier connections. Using this soundbar with our LG OLED 55C7P and what a nice upgrade in sound quality. I was disappointed in needing an APP for the custom room tuning we dont have smart phones. The user manual with this unit was only fair but the user manual from LGs web. site provides plenty of details. I just down loaded those pages that interested me.

Mighty sound bar mighty sound

MamaLeveille 9/3/2021

I got the incredible opportunity to try LGs SPY9A soundbar through The Insiders and it did not disappoint. Firstly the sound bar is rather large. Being that it is a five channel bar it has speakers all around so it makes sense. It is both long and wide but that wasnt a problem for me because I mounted it to the wall. The sound bar came with mounting brackets and a mounting guide to install it perfectly aligned under your TV for optimal sound. It was an easy process but you have to buy the screws to mount it which can be difficult if you do not know the right sized screws to buy. I was able to fit the sub woofer on my TV stand. Through ai room calibration the system feels out the space in a room to fill it with sound so it is important not to block the sound bar or sub woofer. My living room has 12ft ceilings and filling the room with quality sound was not a problem. The bar has 8 different preset sound functions to choose from depending on what type of sound you are looking for. For example it has cinematic or clear voice for movies sports music or AI that chooses which sound will be best for you. Whether it be at max volume or low the sound quality is clear and doesnt distort. I have it hooked up to an LG TV and it has definitely enhanced my viewing experiences. It has Bluetooth technology so it is easy to connect other devices to the sound bar wirelessly as well. Overall I would definitely recommend it. My only reason for not rating it 5 stars is that for the price I feel it should have come with the screws to mount it.

Nice Addition for Better Quality Sound

JazzyH222 8/30/2021

We have the LG 75NANO90UPA TV and paired this soundbar with it. The sound is amazing. It has several sound options included to enhance what ever show you are watching. It has 520 watts of powerful sound. It is a bit larger that most soundbars I have owned and It comes with a wireless subwoofer speaker. The setup amd connectivity was easy. It paired easily with the TV and the LG app was also easy to install and use. The soundbar also streams music and connects with Bluetooth devices pretty easily. This was a good match up for out TV. I am glad I got the pair. I received the soundbar at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion and review.

Packs a punch Literally

safxtacy 8/23/2021

This soundbar is nothing short of amazing. Living in an older place its not feasible for us to run a full wired setup. We also like to keep thins neat and simple. This answered all our needs and WOW is all I can say. A full 5.1 system that is actually immersive. The wireless subwoofer is perfect. With a wired system we would have to run/hide wiring to get it to the optimal location or put it by the TV/receiver where it is not ideal but being wireless we were able to get the perfect placement and it just adds to the whole experience. Were still in awe of how immersive this thing is being a soundbar. It truly feels like a theater setup at home but kept very compact

Total Immersive Sound Expericence

pinnerman 8/18/2021

If you are looking for a total immersive sound experience while watching movies binge watching your favorite show or gaming....look no further. LG has always been a brand that our family trusts to deliver cutting edge technology products with superior quality. This sound bar exceeds all of our expectations. Installation was a breeze. We also love the sound bars app which allows you to further personalize your sound experience. The up-firing speakers on the sound bar really enhance the Dolby Atmos sound quality. The subwoofer is out of this world enhancing the bass without sound distortion. *I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest feedback.

Incredible Soundbar

Jlm80 8/11/2021

This soundbar is the ultimate for immersing yourself in whatever you are listening to. I can bring nature to life in my living or feel like I am partying at the club with the people in a movie. Being able to control the soundbar through google assistant is a big thing for me since my house is very techy and most things are controlled by voice. The Dolby Atmos ensures I have a full 360 degree experience everytime. Meridian technology makes sure the sound is clear and precise so I never miss a sound or word a crucial element for keeping up with the crime shows I enjoy watching.

DrVaro 8/11/2021

The sound produced by the LG SP9YA exceeds our expectations. The quick setup and connection with our LG TV made installation a breeze. The dialogue is very clear and action scenes fill the room with sound. Plus the added thump of the wireless subwoofer makes movie night very enjoyable. The upfiring speakers work decent about as good as you could expect. For our size room we will be looking to add the rear speaker kit to balance things a bit more. Overall very happy with our LG soundbar. I received this product at a discounted price for my honest review.

Superb sound without all the wires

allen_k 8/5/2021

*Disclaimer: I received this item at a discount in exchange for an honest review. I recently picked up the SP9YA along with an LG 75NANO90UPA TV and its a great couple. The soundbar itself was easy to setup. I didnt use the included mounting hardware because our TV mount can move a bit when we get direct sunlight in the afternoon so its mounted to a soundbar mount thats attached to the TV mount. The setup itself was a breeze The power cord was all we needed to have plugged in before we were in business. There are a number of options that you could use to connect the soundbar to the TV but we opted for bluetooth to further reduce the number of cords we would have to run. Bluetooth runs really well. Theres no lag between whats happening on the screen and what were hearing. As far as Im concerned its close enough to a hardwired connection to the TV. Keeping with the cordless theme. the soundbar also came with a big sub that connects wirelessly and instantly which was nice. It was also available instantly as a casting option through YouTube Music and basically any other app that could cast to devices. On the audio front Ive been really happy with it. The audio coming from the soundbar is super crisp and the subwoofer booms. We were watching Black Widow the other day and with the volume at 60 we werent missing the theatre experience in the slightest. Again sound was clear and the sub shook the floors. Overall this is a solid unit doesnt require a ton of wires and the bluetooth connection keeps up with anything youre looking to do.

I have had my soundbar for a couple of weeks now. It took me bit to find how to change the bass and treble once I did it sounded better. Just a little disappointed the treble and bass could not be set higher than 5. I have rewatched several movies to get a comparison from watching without the sound bar. I was amazed that I could hear things that I had not heard before. Great sound

Great Sound Performance

ds09 7/30/2021

Ive been using the LG SP9YA soundbar for about 2 months now and have been very pleased. It has plenty of features for the price point and the sound is top notch especially for streaming music and watching movies. And very much an upgrade over the TV speakers for everyday TV watching. Setup was pretty straightforward and by using the LG Sound app theres access to more features and sound equalizer. The Dolby Atmos and upfiring speakers make watching movies more immersive since I dont have the compatible surround speakers yet. The soundbar is sleek too with the metal grate around the speakers and no cheap plastic. Overall great package in this soundbar and wireless subwoofer and would recommend to others searching for a high quality soundbar at a reasonable price.

Immersive sound experience like no other

RayC102382 7/30/2021

The LG SP9YA Atmos/DTS:X sound bar really bring the Theater experience home The aesthetics and classy looks make this a stand out center piece for your entertainment system. Not only does it look good it also sounds great The 5.1.2 speaker array really engulfs you in the movies brining that next level sound into your home space. You can clearly make out the left right and rear sound coming from sound bar. The sound it creates rich tones and deep bass during explosions. With the optional rear wireless speakers you can add even more dimension to the experience. But even with out rear speakers you get the full complement of Atmos and DTS:X sound without compromise. The Meridian Hi-Res audio is really something you can hear and feel. Music has never sounded so good you can sit anywhere in your living room and get the impression of the music with out any distortion. The built in Alexa and Google assistance make this a center for home automation allowing Alexa to control the TV soundbar and all our smart home components. The built in Chromecast and Apple Airplay allow me to cast my music from anywhere in the house and also link up to other Chromecast devices for a full party mode. This sound bar paired great with our LG 4k TV using the single HDMI e-arc passthrough allowed for full HDR and Dolby Vision and seamless integration with the TV with out the need for multiple remotes. All in all this is the easiest set up for a soundbar and TV configuration no complicated configurations or settings. Just singe e-arc port to HDMI and its ready to go. We are a big movie watching family and with out the great sound to go with its just not the same the LG SP9YA has surpassed our expectations and I would recommend it to any looking for the best sound experience a sound bar can offer. I must disclose that I received this item at a discount for a fair and honest review.

Superb soundbar upgrade

jadorexo 7/29/2021

The LG SP9YA has been a solid upgrade from my last soundbar. The sound is great while watching any genre and the different preset sound effects make it easy to get the most out of what Im watching. The sound settings can be customized further through the LG app which is nice and pretty simple to use. The soundbar streams music very well too it produces a rich sound that fills the room. Ive been streaming music through WiFi mostly but AirPlay and Bluetooth worked well too. Setup was easy and it integrates well with my LG CX television. The only difficulty I had was getting the speaker to connect to my WiFi. It took a few attempts to finally get it connected using the LG app on my phone. There isnt really a simulated surround sound which wasnt expected with no satellite speakers. Ill probably add the SPK8 rear speakers to make it a true surround system.

Full theater system in a small package

bibi322 7/27/2021

So to preface this I will say that I was wholeheartedly against soundbars. Unfortunately due to our new living arrangements we were unable to run wiring and get a full 5.1 setup. This soundbar however has forever changed the way I think about soundbars forever. Hooked this up an optical cable to our new LG 8k TV and it was a perfect combination. The width of the TV matched up perfectly with this. The center speaker allows for crystal clear vocal and dialogue while the rear channels even though they are in the front are very immersive. Despite all these great features my favorite is by far the wireless subwoofer. Weve always been tied down to keeping the subwoofer by the audio receiver but with this wireless sub we were able to actually properly place it to get the best bass output. Proper placement of a sub changes the whole experience. Overall this is an amazing setup. Especially if youre limited on space. You wont find anything that packs a punch like this in a form factor as such. Disclaimer: In exchange for my honest opinion I received the product at a discount.

Great Alternative to Traditional Home Theater

CowboyJMB 7/26/2021

I received the LG SP9YA Soundbar at a discounted price in exchange for my opinion on the product. I have always been a traditional home theater guy with the wired 5.1 system. However since moving to a new house I found I wasnt able to do that as easily. Enter the LG SP9YA. This makes setting up a home theater easily without sacrificing quality. The setup is very easy and minimal. Plug in your HDMI cable into your TV set the sound option for ARC and its ready to go. Setup is even better when pairing with an LG TV like I have. The LG TV Magic remote can control the soundbar in addition to the TV. The subwoofer auto pairs with the soundbar after plugging everything in. If you want additional surround speakers you can get the rear speaker kit that is also wireless. Thats right wireless surround sound Feature wise this soundbar is very rich. eARC for full uncompressed audio from the TV. It supports all Dolby and DTS formats. In addition to ARC/eARC it also has an HDMI input for an additional device. I have my LG bluray player connected and it is very seamless. I dont even have to change the soundbar input. When I change to the HDMI input for the soundbar and bluray player the soundbar automatically changes for using the bluray player. When I change to streaming or live TV it automatically changes back to eARC. I also like that if I want to share something directly from my phone or computer there is a plethora of options for Bluetooth and Wifi. As for sound quality the SP9YA definitely does the job. It is rich and clear. I watch a lot of varied content and also play videogames. When watching content with Atmos encoding it definitely works well and allows the sound to envelop you. The subwoofer is pretty powerful as well Overall this is a great product from LG and definitely recommended for anyone who does not like running wires or just isnt able to set up a traditional home theater.

Surprisingly Great Sound

draperville 7/25/2021

I have never owned a sound bar before I always figured that they were so small that you couldnt get great sound out of it. I had the chance to get a LG sound bar along with a LG tv in a bundle so I was able to try one out. I got the SP9YA which is a 5.1.2 system. It sounds awesome for how small it is love how it fits perfectly under my tv. I will never use the built in tv speakers again thats for sure. You hook it up with a single cable hdmi or optical. Operating it is super easy the integration is great especially if youre using it with an LG tv. There are special AI modes if you have a compatible LG tv. Its great for both tv show and movies. Music also sounds great. You can play music directly from your phone with Bluetooth Airplay or music streaming app. The subwoofer really pumps out room shaking bass. This system has the latest and greatest with Dolby Atmos/DTS and you can use it with Alexa or Google Assistant. LG sells an optional 2pc wireless rear speakers that work with this system its great to have that option. Disclaimer I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest opinions.

LG SP9YA sound bar - rivals an audio system

metalmancpa1 7/15/2021

I received the SP9YA SP9 at a discount in exchange for my honest review. I got mine bundled with an LG 75QNED99UPA TV. Its designed to be seamless with TV taking advantage of AI processing of the TV to produce a neutral realistic sound. One HMDI cable and I was good to go. In the box is the SP9 a sub a remote mounting brackets and an optical cable. This is a 5.1.2 system. Setting it up was straightforward. Plug the bar and the sub in and they automatically connect. I purchased the SPK8 rear speakers to upgrade to 7.1.2 sound. In my testing room I have a full 7.1.2 audio system so I really wanted to compare apples to apples. The SP9 is aesthetically pleasing. The bar looks nice sitting at the base of the LG QNED they were meant to be together. The display is on the front easy to read. The Atmos up firing speakers are on either side of the bar grills on top and there are side firing speakers. The sub is simply stated. The SP9 has a solid build/feel to it. I hooked it up to the TV with an HDMI cable Arc. There is one HDMI input I did not connect an external device optical input and Bluetooth connectivity. For my testing I streamed directly from the TVs apps. I checked out movie scenes from Netflix Amazon Prime Disney+ music videos from YouTube and streamed music from my phone. I realize not everyone with get the rear speakers but I personally think they complete a perfect surround system as the bar itself will not do justice to rear channels no straight bar really would. The SP9 shines with cinematic content. I was taken back by the immersive sound the clarity of voice the punch of the sub and just the overall quality of the sound. It compared quite nicely to my 7.1.2 setup which did surprise me. I think partnering with Meridian really strengthens the SP9s clarity and realism. Everything sounded clean. The sound was forward and with action scenes was in your face. With straight up music from the phone and YouTube I feel my audio system does quite a bit better. The SP9 does well with music but it just did not floor me like it did with the cinematic content. The remote works well with settings as do the controls on the top of the bar but I suggest using the LG Sound Bar app as its much easier to see all of the settings and tweak the system. I have 5.1.2 audio systems in 5 rooms. I did not expect a sound bar to rival them but it does. I absolutely recommend the SP9YA and suggest adding the SPK8s to complete the system.

Amazing sound

domino6713 5/17/2021

Purchased this soundbar after researching options from LG and competitors. There were three main drivers for this purchase. I wanted a device that integrated more seamlessly with my LG TV improved my audio experience and worked with Airplay 2. Very happy with the purchase. The SP9YA checks off all of the boxes and the sound is amazing. Blows away anything Ive ever owned in the past. Id give it a 4.5 if I could. Why 4.5 you may ask? I have two minor gripes with the soundbar and they are VERY minor. There have been several times that I turn the TV on or off but the soundbar doesnt mirror the action. Id say 90 of the time it works just fine but not every time. The other thing that I wish were different is the display. It is always on. I find it distracting especially in a dark room and wish it could be set to turn off a set time after the last change. Both of these could be corrected with an update. Even if they arent Id still make the same choice again. The SP9YA really took my audio experience to a whole new level.
